think the effort to blame mitt romney for this is part of the scapegoating beginning right now. the republican party is to blame for the ridiculous positions that the mitt romney platform and the republican party platform holds. now let me ask you, cheryl because we're seeing some excitement in iowa with this early voting. we know that ohio will start early voting next week. that enthusiasm is boding well for democrats. however, we also know in ohio there has been an effort to disenfranchise people. how is this going to balance out? >> 17 states including ohio have passed restrictive voting laws. in ohio what you saw were early voting hours being reduced in democratic counties and expanded in republican counties. >> jennifer: will that cause people to not stand in line? >> i think it is going to backfire exactly. i think in 2004 what happened is that black voters stood in long lines in order to vote. in 2008 they used early voting in order to make sure their were aim to get their voting in hence the restrictions. now i think as people hear about the restrictions i think that will ge

difficult to explain romney's tax plan because there is no explanation. he hasn't offered any specifics. all right. third issue, as i mentioned is this is what the debate is going to be on right? on the economy. now the romney memo says that mitt romney will champion manufacturing jobs and bring them back to our shores and it also says that america has lost 582,000 manufacturing jobs under the president's watch. now mitt romney clearly plans to go after the president on the jobs record, but here is the truth. president obama has the longest stretch of manufacturing job gains -- get this wait for it -- in almost two decades. since 2000 when president bush came into office, the manufacturing sector went into a steep slide, but since 2010, that slide has turned around. the president has record on manufacturing jobs since president clinton. and he noted as much during his dnc speech. >> and after a decade of decline, this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years. >> jennifer: now in polititfacts rated that statement by president clint

look at our electoral maps app right now. there are nine states in play those are the ones in yellow. the president is otherwise leading absent those yellow states with 237 electoral votes to mitt romney's 191. in ohio a public policy polling survey shows that president obama is leading by 4 percentage points, plus yesterday a columbus dispatch poll had the president up nine points. so let's give those 18 electoral votes to president obama, brings him to 255 and romney 191. in florida a poll shows president obama leading by 1 percentage point. that's until the margin of error, so we'll keep those as a toss up at yellow. out in iowa -- again these are all polls out today -- in iowa there was a we ask america poll showing president obama 44%. we'll give the president those electoral votes. things are looking better, though, for mitt romney in north carolina. in north carolina the arg poll shows romney leading 50-46%. and a ppp poll out today that shows it all even. so we'll keep that state in the toss-up column. there are 36 days until the election. this election actually despite every

. >> >> jennifer: and everybody else. all right. political junkies, up next mitt romney's political compass stopped spinning long enough for him to change course again. the destination, the middle. plus what did swing states think about the debate and what do they think about the jobs reports. and what more could you want on a friday night? >> it's not 100%. ♪ >> jennifer: so today's jobs report may be the positive data point that president obama's reelection campaign needs to hang its hat on, but there is new post debate polling that is not very good news. 20% of registered voters say the debate made them feel more negative towards president obama. 30% say they now have a more positive impression of mitt romney. and a representative for that poll included people who heard or read something about the debate. that same poll has the president leading among likely voters 46 to 44%. but before the debate president obama lead by 6 percentage points, so there is evidence the race is tightening. so we had to go right to the source of all polls for analysis, and we're joined by one of our favorit

mitt romney's strategy of saying one thing and then right afterward have his campaign walk it back actually work? alan schroeder is a professor at northeastern university, the author of presidential debates 50 years of high-risk tv. professor, glad to welcome you back into "the war room." is team romney's little two-step with the truth effective? >> you know, unfortunately, i think that strategy is sort of effective and here's the analogy i would use. it's like the newspaper article that gets something wrong. everybody reads the story and gets the mistake in version of what happened but the correction that comes out the next day is on page 35 in a little box and nobody sees it. and so that's what happens here. it really has to get corrected during the debate and that was the job of course of barack obama and for whatever reason, he didn't do it. >> jennifer: let it go means that you end up missing the opportunity to set the record straight in front of 50 million people. we talked about this last night. -- last time, whether it is a better strategy to spend your time rebutting lies

mitt romney now wants to make this election a choice and he's right. there is a choice. it is a debate about the role of government and creating a civil society, a society where we look out for one another but maybe give people the tools to become independent. or we can choose mitt romney. you remember what mitt romney told eye owe wants back in june about president obama. >> he wants to hire more government workers. we need more firemen more policemen, more teachers. did he not get the message in wisconsin, the american people did. it is time for us to cut back on government and help the american people. >> jennifer: so do the american people want us to cut the jobs of firemen policemen and teachers? well, sharp scrutiny on the role and the influence of public sector employees and their unions is the focus of the controversial new book, "new york times" best selling book from author and citadel political professor mallory factor. it is called "shadow bosses". rob taxpayers blind. mallory factor is joining us from new york. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you. great

number five. distinction that mitt romney made money off of it. we'll narrow that down for you right here in "the war room." >> romney: but the idea that you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is simply not the case. >> jennifer: okay, this lie really burns me because as head of bain capital, mitt romney likely financially benefitted from moving jobs overseas to china. so let's debunk this fallacy of the night. we have a june letter to lawmakers from the congressional joint committee on taxation. it says... in other words, firms that move their factories overseas can deduct the moving expenses. you pay for that. seems like something that mitt romney's savvy accountant would be well aware of. now, there is no doubt about it. big money can get very ugly and not just when it comes to outsourcing. greg palace is an investigative reporter specializing in voter suppression. he's out with a new book "billionaires and bailout bandits, how to steal the election in nine easy steps." greg welcome inside "the war room." >> glad to be with you governor. >> jennifer: all right. so you make a r

romney campaign, the j.d. hayworth piece of advice, what would be your number one piece of advice right now? >> consider to run on a center right platform, continue to reach out to every voter concentrate on the swing states and on to victory election day. >> ok. well, you just keep drinking what you're drinking my dear. that's former congressman. >> victory punch. ok thanks. >> coming up, j.d.'s beloved arizona is just one of several southwestern red states that is seeing purple or even blue on the horizon. boy, would that ever be sweet. >> plus, daniel day lewis could be disguised as one of our camera guys and i wouldn't know it. the master of getting into character tries abe lincoln on for size. they're doing this this corruption based on corruption based on corruption. >>that's an understatement, eliot. >> jennifer: the president might be having a little bit of a rough week at least with the debate performance. sorry, mr. president, followed by these tightening swing state polls, but if you are looking for some good news here it is. the president now leads among registered latino vo
